Ryan Shazier on helmet rule: Changing will be hard

If Ryan Shazier ever returns to football as he hopes, he’s going to have to play the game differently.

The Steelers linebacker admitted that he’s not sure how Wholesale Jerseys From China defensive players in the NFL are going to adjust to the rule that was inspired after his head-down hit against the Bengals which left him temporarily paralyzed.

Honestly I have been playing football when I was 4, so some of the hits that I did were some of the same ones I’ve had since I was 10 years old, Shazier said during his first press conference since the injury. So it’s kind of hard when they are trying to tell you to avoid hitting a certain way because at the end of the day, a lot of people who are playing this game have been probably playing it since before they could really speak full sentences, and honestly it’s a little hard.

Perhaps if he had been taught to play another way when he was 4, his current situation could have been avoided. And while the NFL’s rule change is a top-down solution for the sport, it’s hard to imagine any player who sees Shazier now not realizing the risks of leading with your head.

And while all American voters support the NFL’s new anthem policy (51-42), all American voters oppose fining teams if players on the field fail to stand for the anthem, by a 51-44 margin.

None of this is surprising, but it underscores the fact that the NFL, for whatever reason, has opted to listen to only one side, with Steelers owner Art Rooney recently claiming that the vast majority of our fans oppose players protesting during the anthem.

“Not in my mind,” Sherman told reporters Thursday, via the Seattle Times. “We’re going to try to get everything back on track, get healthy and try to get back after it. Hopefully everybody heals up the way they’re supposed to. I hope Kam [Chancellor]play and it works out however it needs to for him. But obviously [the roster is] going to look different either way.”
